Services

Physiotherapy

Physiotherapy

At the Corrective Clinic, physiotherapy is about more than quick fixes to relieve pain and tension. We combine all physical treatment therapies with our hands-on and educative approach to empower you to maintain a level of health that is pain free.

We work with the physically active to the chronically injured, from the neck through to the feet, from professional athletes to the active individual. Whatever sport or activity is your passion we can help you to improve your performance. Our approach to your health is based on proven research around what works best to heal your body. We combine exercise, manipulation, mobilisation, stretching, massage, trigger point release and Pilates to cater to you health needs

Your initial assessment will last 60 minutes and our practitioner will conduct a thorough examination of your issue, from examining your range of movement to understanding how it affects your life. This will allow us to provide you with a diagnosis and develop a recovery plan.

Follow-up sessions can be between 30 to 60 minutes, depending on your schedule and availability. Our approach will focus on exercising to re-correct your movement in combination with the other specialties mentioned above to reduce tension and improve mobility through your entire structure.

We believe that educating you about how your body moves and re-training it will reduce your issue from returning. We have found that when an individual is empowered to manage their own health, they can fast-track their improvement and sustain their health for longer.

Physiotherapy-1

Massage

Massage is a key element to restoring normal movement and function in your body. It decreases pain, relieves tension and increases blood flow through a combination of deep tissue release and trigger point activation with stretching and peripheral work, depending on your specific needs.

At the Corrective Clinic we complement our massage skills with manipulation and mobilisation of the spine and its periphery. Our physiological knowledge allows us to work at the deeper levels of your tissues ensuring you the best results. During a session, you will learn about how your body is moving and understand any areas of concern within your structural system.

This will allow you to be proactive in managing your function in the future. We work with all part of the body from the hands to the feet. We also work closely with our partners at Advanced Joint and Spine Clinic when specialist manipulative care is required.

Exercise

At the Corrective Clinic we believe that exercise is the key to your long term health management. We use exercise to reconnect the body to control itself with movement and reduce pain. We work one-on-one to teach you about your strengths and weaknesses in relation to your flexibility, strength and functional movement.

We work from your base level, making sure that all areas of your core are active, able to hold your limbs and sustain pain free functional movement. As physiotherapists, we apply biomechanical principles to address your injury through exercise – whether you are re-learning how to walk or properly get out of a chair to shaving a few extra seconds off your sprint time. We can help you.

Exercise also has the positive side effect of reducing stress, building strength, power and endurance as well as assisting with weight management.

We have our own on-site gym and rehabilitation facility so we can work with you in the right environment to meet your exercise goals. We also work with local trainers and fitness professionals.

If you are already working with a trainer we can provide them with guidance around your current issues and specific do’s and don’t to maximise your fitness regime.

Rehabilitation

Pre and Post Operative Rehabilitation

At the Corrective Clinic we believe that getting you moving in the correct biomechanical way will dramatically improve your rehabilitation. Whether you are recovering from an injury or want to start the process of undoing poor movement habits, we have the facilities and know-how to fast-track your rehabilitation.

Getting moving again after surgery can be hard, we understand how to improve your post-operative recovery and reduce the need for further surgery in the future. Our combination of exercise theory, education, biomechanical re-training and manual therapy releases tension, improves strength, mobility and decreases pain.

We focus on correcting poor habits to prevent injuries reoccurring, making your future brighter.

muscle-pain

Muscle Balance
Assessment

  • Been carrying the same injury for months or years?
  • Have an injury you just can’t shake?
  • In a chronic state of pain?

Then this may be the assessment tool for you.

A muscle balance assessment is a holistic assessment of your body and your life. It starts with a head-to-toe assessment of your bones, ligaments, muscles, joints, basic core and functional movements. We also look at your sleep patterns, eating habits, work-life balance and analyse why your body’s ability to heal has been impeded.

This assessment will give you a complete analysis of what is happening in your body, why you are in pain and why you haven’t been able to resolve the issue.

Based on the assessment we can provide recommendations on how you can break the cycle of injury and pain, including exercise, massage, education and at-home programs. We can support you to achieve your goals in our on-site rehabilitation facility.

If you are already working with other health professionals, the assessment can be used as a guide to support your health and training team as part of your recovery.

Acupuncture

The practice of acupuncture and moxibustion is based on the theory of meridians. According to this theory, qi (vital energy) and blood circulate in the body through a system of channels called meridians, connecting internal organs with external organs or tissues. By stimulating certain points of the body surface reached by meridians through needling or moxibustion, the flow of qi and blood can be regulated and diseases are thus treated. These stimulation points are called acupuncture points, or acupoints.

At The Corrective Clinic we use acupunture through the process of dry needling During this time the needles may be manipulated to achieve the effect of tonifying the qi. Needle manipulations are generally involved with lifting, thrusting, twisting and rotating, according to treatment specifications for the health problem. Needling may also be activated by electrical stimulation, a procedure usually called electro-acupuncture, in which manipulations are attained through varying frequencies and voltages.

Treatment protocols, frequency and duration are a matter of professional judgment of the practitioner, in consultation with the patient. A common course of treatment may initially involve between ten and fifteen treatments spaced at approximately weekly intervals, and spread out to monthly later in a program.
